condition. mrs. clinton suffered the concussion while battling a stomach flu, which left her dehydrated, causing her to faint and fall at her home. mrs clinton had been expected to return to work next week. a bill to legalize same-sex marriage in illinois could come before state lawmakers in springfield as soon as this week >> the headline in sundays sun times said it all... president obama calling on illinois to legalize gay marriage... i think the president speaks for the majority of americans.. the timing... crucial for state represenative greg harris, who looks for a vote on marriage equlity in springfield in the next week... just two months after voters maine, maryland and washington state approved same sex marriage laws.. this is where the people of america are.. this is where the people of illinois are. citing the presidents stance, the white house said 'were the president still in the illinois state legislatuire, he would support this measure that would treat all illinois couples equally.' but conservative chicago democrat, represenative joe lyons, says the presidents view wont
